Several structures have been analyzed.

Stone monuments in the Angkor archaeological park, registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, are now largely deteriorated and the state of the preserved ones is rapidly getting worse. Thus, international experts are intensely looking into causes of the poor technical condition of these important monuments and are trying to find suitable solutions for their rehabilitation.

The Czech research team participates in saving these monuments in Angkor as well, with the five-year research project "Thermal Imaging and Structural Analysis of Sandstone Monuments in Angkor". The Dlubal Software program RFEM was used to create numerical models and carry out the structural analysis.
